Does Anyone Really Need This?, 29 Nov 2009
I love Queen, I even think their dodgy "disco" album Hot Space was great! But really, what is the point in releasing this? Yes the music is great, but seeing as most households in the UK will own Greatest Hits, and Greatest Hits 2 isn't far behind (GH3 is another rip off) then most people these days can create their own, personalised, one disc "Queen Best Of" on their computers. What true fans really want is a multi-disc package of rare songs/demos from the 70s and 80s. There was talk about re-releasing the original albums AGAIN with a few added demos on...which in my view is another rip off. A 2 or 3 drisc set would be perfect...lets face it theres enough rare songs on YouTube to do this! OK The 9 disc set of Freddie Mercury out takes was overkill, but come on, they recorded for almost 20 years, so someone is sitting on their arses...and the songs with Michael Jackson and Freddie....C'MON FOR GODS SAKE!!!!
